Great casual use ...poor/dangerous extreme sports.
Tg4 owner/ point & shoot.
Great if you plan to hold camera in your hand with flosting strap around your wrist. Walking on beach, taking pictures of kids in pool....low energu activities.
Poor...if you are engaged in extreme sports I canyoneer & my camera stap & case are attached to me with a locking carabiner. Using this type of floating strap has caused snags on various objects. I now have a large solid yellow oval foam float attached that floats camera/case/ carabiner combo. Olympus...please get some & put your logo on them . I would have bought several when I ordered my camera....instead I had to get them from another store ( canyoneering equipmrnt retailer, marine shop / .....make sure its the larger version...the small keychain floats don't ffloat the combo wt.
It works great with a compact camera (Tough series), not sure if it would hold a heavier one. Great for use in a pool, as you can just let go of it and it will be easy to find, however, I would only use it as insurance in open water, the waves could make you lose it!

Nice to use, with a weak link
I used this strap on my TG-820 for a couple of years, and it was comfortable and functional. However, recently I was in the water and noticed that the strap had become detached from the camera. It turns out that the thin loop that ties to the camera had broken. Fortunately, I had the camera in my hand when I noticed this, or I might have lost it. After some use, I would advise that you keep an eye out for wear on this loop.
When I got my red Stylus TOUGH-3000, this came in the box. It worked great! It kept my camera afloat perfectly in the pool. Until I broke it. When I was trying to detach it from after a pool trip, the snap broke from the string that goes to the camera. I wasn't able to fix it. But overall, if you're careful with it, it can keep a camera afloat for many, many, many years.
